196. O Breath of Life

1 O Breath of Life, come sweeping through us,
Revive Thy church with life and pow'r.
O Breath of Life, come, cleanse, renew us,
And fit Thy church to meet this hour.

2 O Wind of God, come bend us, break us,
Till humbly we confess our need;
Then in Thy tenderness remake us,
Revive, restore, for this we plead.

3 O Breath of Love, come breathe within us,
Renewing thought and will and heart;
Come, Love of Christ, afresh to win us,
Revive Thy church in every part.

4 Revive us, Lord! Is zeal abating
While harvest fields are vast and white?
Revive us, Lord, the world is waiting,
Equip Thy church to spread the light.
